The menu balances colors, aromas and flavors, composing a delicious canvas that will appeal to all senses and elevate the Messinian gastronomy to new sensory heights.

The Funky Gourmet Chefs, Georgianna and Nikos, commented: “We couldn’t help but grab the opportunity to create a menu based on products sourced in the rich Messinian land. We consider the Messinian diet to be a gastronomic landmark of the Greek culinary heritage”.

Set by the Ionian Sea in a pristine scenery of olive groves, The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort, features 21 dining venues, including traditional and modern Greek, Mediterranean and ethnic cuisine among others. With an emphasis on fresh local produce, the restaurants utilize freshly cultivated vegetables and herbs from the resort’s gardens, alongside the extra virgin olive-oil from its centuries-old olive groves.
